Born in Dublin, Pratibha Castle now lives in West Sussex. Although she had a brief love affair with poetry – both the reading and the writing of it – on an English and Creative Writing Degree course at Chichester University in 2009, her focus at that time and later on a Creative Writing MA at Chichester University, was prose. In 2019, inspired by Mary Oliver’s passing, poetry took her over. It has yet to let her out of its grip, a situation she is well content with. Pratibha is currently looking for a publisher for a second pamphlet.
